    Excellent, it is very good to stay in this hostel. Thanks for Paul who offers me free to look after my one luggage while I flow to big island and Paul also offers me a very good parking lot! the Kitchen is so clean and neat just all the best to us. We ( my cousin and I ) so enjoy with the hospitality that Paul provides to us.

    This is not the hostel you want if you want to party it up or leave your bunk a total mess. They are stringent with cleanliness and organization and this is why I loved this place. Got a nice sleep every night with very respectful bunk mates. The hostel is in the heart of Waikiki a block away from the beach and very close to a lot of restaurants. Paul and Chris have a serious demeanor, not to be confused with rude or disrespectful, they'll provide any info you need. I'd gladly stay here again.

    Overall the place was just right for a trip to Honolulu. The location was just right, 3min walk to the beach. Also different public buses stop near this location if you plan on using the buses. Place was clean and basic. Guests kept to themselves and polite. Would recommend this place if you plan to stay busy and exploring Honolulu for majority of the trip.

    Great location in the heart of Waikiki, really close to the beach. The owner offers everything you need for a day at the beach (chairs, umbrella, towels, snorkels etc.) which is great. Room is very basic but clean. However, no AC in the room, WIFI only in the common area. Additionally, there is construction work going on right next door which leads to a lot of noise starting early in the morning.

    You get what you pay for. Pretty bare bones I unfortunately arrived at 1:00 pm and they only have someone behind the desk during check-in hours so had to carry my suitcase around for a couple hours. Management was quite strict (at least you knew there wouldn't be anyone getting in that shouldn't have been there). But it was in a good location and I had a nice few days overall.

    Great location and clean interior. Staffs are ok friendly but they impose quite a lot of rules include clean flip flops or no shoes if you come from the beach. If you want to check out early you have to return key the night before. They also have strict check in time as well so if you arrive early, it can be problematic. Hence overall atmosphere was not that great if you travel solo.
